'It’s a special night for our family.” This year's Hockey Fights Cancer Night carried some extra emotion for Jets defenceman Josh Morrissey. (WiebesWorld)

Tom also had an impact on Morrissey developing his style and fashion sense and that’s part of how the idea of auctioning off a suit with the liner signed by his teammates came about.

Tom Morrissey was known for his gregarious nature and this is definitely one of those cases where the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree. “You get kind of a high pick come in and it wasn’t an easy, necessarily straight line and you have experiences over the course of your career of moms and dads not understanding why that, the day after the draft, he wasn’t first-line centre or whatever. He was always so very positive about the direction, really liked what was going on. Really positive feedback with him and I think that attitude you see in Josh. He’s always a really upbeat guy coming to work, excited to work. He’s a good man.

That’s kept Jamie away from the team for all but a handful of games in California, but he remains heavily involved in terms of interacting with the coaching staff.“So for Tina and Jamie, it’s a significant battle they’ve been fighting for a long time. It’s been years now,” said Maurice.
